gastrointestinal difficulties Parkinson's

Why Might Constipation Be a Parkinson's Symptom?

Thursday, July 16, 12 to 1 p.m. ET

Our panelists will discuss constipation and other gastrointestinal difficulties Parkinson's patients can experience, and why the gut is of interest to researchers.

Constipation and other gastrointestinal difficulties can severely affect quality of life. Parkinson’s researchers have pinpointed the gut as a place of interest because of biological changes seen there. We’ll discuss constipation and problems with stomach emptying (called gastroparesis) seen in Parkinson’s, what researchers believe is happening in the gut, and how these symptoms are treated.
